Shady walks leading to verdant glades, to groves where fountains play, and distant views of wooded heights, create an unforgettable mind picture. Uw Autochromes Lumiere by Gervais Courtellemont THE GROTTO OF APOLLO The celebrated sculptured group at the entrance to the cave portrays the Sun God, who has come to rest in the dwelling of Tethys, goddess of the sea. Her daughters crowd round to serve him and to offer perfumes. In the hollows of the Grotto, to the right and left, are the horses of Apollo.
